Hello all!  In a rare public appearance since disappearing into academia with his latest university Chair of Irish Studies in Canada, Clare concertina champion, author and Irish cultural historian Gearóid ÓhAllmhuráin will be joining the 2014 faculty of MAD Week.



MAD Week is an annual school for the traditional arts convened every July, with multiple tracks of classes for all ages and skill levels in song, dance and instrumental instruction.  MAD Week is quickly gaining a reputation as one of the East Coast's premier clinic weeks for learning the traditional arts. 


Gearóid joins a stellar cast of Irish musicians including Brian Conway, Rose Conway, Kevin Crawford, Cillian Vallely, Myron Bretholz, Josh Dukes, Linda Hickman, superb sean-nós dancers and many more.  This is one of our favorite weeks and conveniently located in the DC area.  Please consider joining us and thank you for spreading the word!

OK, this is too good to miss.


Does anyone have information about nearby lodgings? It's always fun to stay where the teachers are staying!


Wondering if I'll need to rent a car for the week.
